Reblog if you’re in recovery from a mental illness. I want to find more blogs to follow of people going through similar journeys!
You are allowed to grieve the years you lost to mental illness. You’re allowed to be mad that it happened to you. You’re allowed to pine after the person you might have been had it been different. But don’t let that get in the way of your growing into your new self and following a wholly new path for your life.
"but you don’t seem bipolar"
okay great the meds are working then
So far my work has been pretty mundane compared to my training experience. In school I was getting knives pulled on me, chairs thrown at me and I was having to talk razor blades out of people’s hands. I’ve counselled clients who were having sex with their pets, abusing their elderly parents, shoving mars bars up their anus, and in need of help in exorcising the devil from their penis and the whole time I’m like:
Jedi skill level poker face!
Now, I’m dealing with scenarios such as, “I’ve got this family thing I’m super dreading, can we talk about that?” or “My kid was just diagnosed with ADHD, can you teach me a little bit about it?”
I want to react like:
"Is that it?"
…..I probably just jinxed myself.
